Stocks in this article: CMS

JACKSON, Mich., June 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Thirteen solar projects planned by two business and 9 residential customers have been selected to move forward as part of Consumers Energy's ongoing implementation of Michigan's energy reform law. 

The random-selection process for these qualified applicants is part of the company's Experimental Advanced Renewables Program (EARP).  The program provides for the long-term purchase of renewable energy generated by solar energy systems owned by electric customers. 

Business customer projects selected during this phase include two General Motors Company projects located in Genesee County and a project owned by Courter Farms Land, L.L.C., based in Gratiot County.  The business customer-owned projects range in electric capacity from 42.5 kilowatts to 150 kilowatts.

The residential customer projects selected during this phase of the program are located in the following counties: Barry, Benzie, Calhoun, Eaton, Gratiot, Ionia, Jackson, Kalamazoo and Newaygo.  The customer-owned projects range in electricity capacity from 3.3 kilowatts to 20 kilowatts.

Consumers Energy will be conducting an information session on July 11, 2013, at University of Michigan, Flint Campus for anyone interested in learning about customer-installed solar energy systems. The session will be held at the Harding Mott University Center.  The session is free of charge, open to the public and will take place from 5:30 PM until 8:30 PM

Speakers during the session will provide information on how customers can install their own solar energy systems as part of Consumers Energy's Experimental Advanced Renewable Program. Reservations for this session and information about the program are available at www.consumersenergy.com/EARP.

This session will begin a new phase of the program as Consumers Energy will begin accepting applications from electric residential customers on July 1, 2013.  Applications will be due August 7, 2013.

Consumers Energy's program currently has contracts in place to purchase renewable energy from 191 customer-owned solar generators as part of the utility's renewable energy plan.
